No longer search by Soundtrack?

I know I used to be able to search by soundtrack entry, but I can no longer find that functionality on the IMDB site.  Is this a function that has been removed from the site?

I had heard the song "Love Train" by the O'Jays and had a visual ear worm happen.  I could remember there was a movie using the song but it was driving me crazy what movie I was remembering.  Traditionally IMDB would be my go to source to figure out what I was trying to remember, but I could not find that functionality anymore.  I had to pose the query to Google to find "The Martian".

Can anyone tell me how one now would do this simple search on IMDB?  Please state exact method now.

I would note that the 35,933 titles that one finds when searching for "love train" are all the soundtracks that contain EITHER the word "love" or the word "train".

If there is a way to find soundtracks that contain BOTH the words "love" and "train", I can't figure that out.

Better yet would be a way to find soundtracks that contain the CONSECUTIVE WORDS "love train", but that doesn't appear to be available either. A search for "love train" surrounded by quotation marks in the Soundtracks search function generates exactly the same 35,933 results as not surrounding those words by quotation marks.

So I am requesting that the Soundtracks search function default to an AND search, instead of an OR search. I am also requesting that the Soundtracks search function add a function to search for a string of words surrounded by quotation marks.
